YMMV / Days of Thunder

  • Genius Bonus: Since actual footage is mixed up with movie-made footage, this tend to happened sometimes.
    • The "Ice Cream" scene is based off a real-life occurrence between racer Benny Parsons and his pit crew.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The fatal crash of Harry's former driver, when described, sounds disturbingly like the notorious circumstances of Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s death...which happened eleven years after the movie's release.
